Stock 89 -95 block just upgraded.....vortec heads, 480 roller cam, intake, etc... Had to tap block nipples for lifter  hold down plate...changed distributer gear to match cam. Distributer goes in smooth but won't drop into oil pump shaft!!! Tried bumping motor over while pressing down on distributer...tried turning oil pump shaft to line up...all help is appreciated.

I finally got it...I ended up pulling dist gear off to see if dist would seat in oil pump shaft...it did so I figured cam was too far forward or back...loosened rocker nuts and it dropped first stab...boy was I happy after 3 days of failure...finally heard the built motor run with ear to ear smile
